Review:

I’m doing a bit of a catch up, I have a review of the fourth in this series tomorrow, so I thought I best read this one first as it’s been sitting on my NetGalley shelf since July!

So this is the third in the Maddie Ives series but works perfectly well as a standalone without feeling you’ve missed too much. 

A boy is found bloodied and wandering the streets. He refuses to speak. Maddie Ives is the officer on duty and happens to land the case. A man is found dragged to death but it’s only the beginning. Can Maddie, along with her boss Harry Blaker piece things together before anyone else gets hurt?

My goodness what a book! He Will Find You is a complex but compelling story that blends several storylines together seamlessly.

I love Maddie as a character. She’s strong and a little stubborn, a former undercover officer who is still struggling to work as part of a team and not go off on her own but she still a very likeable character who you’d want in your corner if you ever needed it.

I also enjoyed seeing a more personal side to Harry Blaker who may have a gruff exterior but underneath he’s still struggling with the death of his wife and to connect with his daughters.

My only issue was I felt the first half of the book was a little slow paced but boy that ending, had me biting my nails!

He Will Find You is a tense and gripping police procedural that did not disappoint!
